"All mandatory discovery has been turned over to the court,"
said Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney Patrick Haggan
during a brief hearing at Suffolk Superior Court in Boston.
Hernandez in May pleaded not guilty to fatally shooting Daniel
Abreu and Safiro Furtado, neither of whom he knew, outside a
Boston nightclub after one of the men accidentally spilled a
drink on him.
It is one of two murder trials the former New England Patriots
tight end is facing, having been arrested in June 2013 and
charged with shooting dead semiprofessional football player Odin
Lloyd near Hernandez' home in North Attleborough, Massachusetts.
Hernandez, who last month was moved from a jail in southern
Massachusetts to a Boston facility at his attorneys' request,
was not present at Thursday's hearing.
Hernandez was dropped by the Patriots hours after his arrest on
charges of murdering Lloyd.
